Mennonite Central Committee invites congregations to observe Peace Sunday on November 6, 2016 -- close to Remembrance Day -- or another appropriate Sunday. For Anabaptist churches, it is a time to remember that followers of Jesus are called to be people of peace. Remembrance Day is a time when our country focuses attention on Canada’s military history and the sacrifice of Canadians who gave their lives in war.
This year’s Peace Sunday Packet focuses on the theme of “Women as Peacebuilders”. It includes:
- biblical reflections
- worship resources (prayers, readings, a reader's theatre and a story for children)
- stories of ten courageous women building peace
- background information
